Yep, Sagan cites a throat infection or some such bs. I had also taken out Contador for Sagan. Not looking so good today!

Also swapped Contador for Sagan having avoided him thus far.

Sods law and all that.

Looks like Froome wins the stage from Contador and Rodriguez. Impey and Stybar led home a 7-man chase group.

Not good for me, but I did keep Froome, and saved 4 transfers for tomorrow, so could be worse. Don't know where Nibali disappeared to tho' the bugger.

Big Grin Woo hoo, I changed Sagan for Froome... Big Grin
My psychologist tells me not to gloat too much, as it is bad for my health.

Oops! Well at least a lot of other people swapped Contador for Sagan. These things are bound to happen.

It could've been a lot worse today. Nibali to Nocentini worked out well, and lots of people made the Contador to Sagan transfer so I don't feel too bad.

Why did I not listen to Stybar this morning on twitter, he was up at stupid o'clock and I asked if he had his climbing legs on....

Good score for me today compared to recently. 127 points which has led to a few green arrows.

Quite happy considering i messed up my team and ran the race with only 7 out of 9 racing Big Grin

I didn't know anything about Sagan until I did the scores today.

What was up with him?
